Me neither! The History of Christianity is essentially the history of Western Civilization; so if you don't remember who Atilla the Hun was, aren't sure what caused the Great Schism, or can't tell the difference between Martin Luther & Martin Luther King, Collins & Price will bring you up to speed.
This is a very readable book that takes a heckuva lot of information and presents it in an understandable format. I find myself actually wanting to pick it up and keep reading, which is a first for a non-fiction book and me!
If you're looking for an in-depth treatise on the Christian religion, I'm sure there are heavier tomes. But if you just want to feel like you can hold your own watching Jeopardy, this is the book for you!

Format: Hardcover
Rarely has a book so vividly captured the history, the faith, pageantry and essence of the message and legacy of Christ as this publication. The two authors, one a young Catholic priest, have done a superb job in conveying the richness and the diversity of Christianity in all of its glory. Their emphasis on the importance of the historical facts had a special resonance for me, as only through the lessons of the past can we come to understand and respect each other's traditions.
This book is a testimony to state-of-the-art printing and lavish design and production. It was a joy to behold, and a treasure to keep in my library. I commend it to you without reservation.

This is an Excellent Contemporary Book of Christian History during and after JESUS CHRIST. It also highlights the various Christian events that took place that shaped the world and resulted in Christianity being the Predominant Faith in the World. The Book is concise and has vivid colour illustrations to show the various events. These qualities make the book unique.
